and we consider cnn on the map. this is where the candidates were in their final four days. yesterday through tuesday. let's start with president obama. where he goes is where he thinks he can win. ohio, ohio, ohio. the president was there yesterday and back there today and monday. two stops in iowa. very important state. he'll end his campaign monday night in iowa, of course, that was the state that gave him his first victory back in the iowa caucuses back in 2008. mitt romney, ohio is so important for him, as well. no republican has won the white house without winning ohio in modern times. pennsylvania where i am, mitt rom economy coming here tomorrow where i am and paul ryan coming here today. that's why we're here. listen, mitt romney thinks they can grab pennsylvania away from the democrat, a state the republicans haven't won since 9 1988. >> paul, thanks. randi. >>> new numbers on where things stand in florida. take a look here. this nbc news/"wall street journal/"marist poll. florida is the biggest of all the expected swing state with 29 electoral votes. >>> on the campaign tr
in as many swing states as they can before tuesday. joining me now are cnn contributors. good morning to both of you. maria, i want to ask you first, is this about reaching undecided or uncommitted voters, or is this just about making sure that the people turn out on tuesday? >> well, there's no question that at this point, randi, the campaigns are focused on turning out their vote, turning out their bases, turning out all of those voters they've been in contact with for the past several months. everyone that they've been identifying as somebody who is voting their way or who at least is leaning their way, and, yes, it still is trying to get those two or three undecided voters who might still be out there, which is why you are seeing each of the candidates mad to making the strong contrast between themselves and their opponent, they're trying to keep it very positive. i have heard romney do that. i have heard the president do that. in terms of what they would do in the next four years and what they believe they have done up until now. so it's very interesting because they are splitting that,
, a democratic consult and the who worked on the kerry and gore campaigns. special election coverage here on cnn begins right now. >>> it is up to the american people right now. good morning and welcome to our special edition of "early start." we have complete 4ri6 coverage of election day 2012. over the past 17 months we've watched two campaign spend a combined $3 billion, two candidates duel it out in three dramatic debates, all trying to win your vote. now more than 1 million campaign commercials later, 1 million campaign commercials later, the polls are opening. voting is beginning in parts of vermont. mitt romney not letting up on this election day. he's added two final campaign stops in cleveland, ohio and in pittsburgh, pennsylvania. both of them, of course, critical battle ground states.

's traveling on the cnn election express and also there is john avalon, cnn contributor. hello, gentlemen. listen, you all heard what the president and mr. romney had to say, but, you know, let's talk about the political capital here. who is going to get more political capital out of this with just four days to the election, ali? >> well, hands down president obama because he had the most to lose out of this thing. the issue was if the unemployment rate went up substantially, or more importantly if the 171,000 jobs weren't created. the expectation was for 125,000 jobs. as long as he cleared that, he was going to be okay. barack obama gets more out of it. as you can see, he's not emphasizing the unemployment rate when he's speaking. mitt romney is doing that math that doesn't work thing again. barack obama said that the unemployment was going to be this and now it is this and as a result 9 million people are out of work. that's just not math that works. i don't think either of them are convincing anybody right now. this could have hurt barack obama. it is not going to hurt him. i don't kno
is extremely tight right now. here is the national cnn poll. the survey is out over the last week and a half. average them together. it's as close as you can get. look at these numbers, colorado is one of the eight battleground states. a very, very close contest. ift's why you hear the rhetoric and the candidates going to the battleground states in the last four days. >> paul steinhauser, thank you. >> we are talking chairs this morning. actor clint eastwood appeared on fox news to talk about his whacky republican national convention speech and how it came to be, how the chair came to be on stage with him talking to it. in case you missed the speech, here it is. >> what do you want me to tell romney? i can't tell him to do that. can't do that to himself. you're absolutely crazy. you're getting as bad as biden. >> now the acting, directing legend says it was an ad lib, which was obvious at the time. let's listen. >> i have to give john vioght a pat on the back. i was sitting with him and a couple other people talking about the economy. he said why doesn't anybody in hollywood ever speak up. i
're watching a special edition of starting point and cnn's live coverage of election day 2012. the two candidates have been talking for about 17 months now and now it's the american people who will have the final say. these are the states with polls that are opening right now. state of delaware, state of florida, state of georgia, illinois, kansas, louisiana, maryland, massachusetts, michigan, missouri, pennsylvania, rhode island, south carolina, tennessee, and washington, d.c. you're looking at a live picture now from wilmington, delaware, where joe biden is expected to vote at any moment. the vice president then will head to chicago to watch the returns with president obama today. mitt romney is not letting up on this election day. he's added two campaign campaign stops today in cleveland, ohio, and in pittsburgh, pennsylvania. there are already legal issues that are plaguing two battleground states. state of florida, where there are more long lines yesterday, and democrats are suing to extend early voting hours, even though those early voting hours legally ended on saturday. then th
're in a state that holds 18 electoral votes. i want you to look at this. it is cnn's most up-to-date polls. 50% for the president. 47% for republican mitt romney. but, with the sampling error, it is a dead heat. now, look at this coverage. three days to go and cnn has a battleground state covered like no other news network. all over nevada, wisconsin and here in ohio. all across this country, i'm going to take you on the road with both campaigns in just a minute. first, we have a very interesting election day from the state of new jersey that they tell you about now. it involves you of victims of super storm, sandy who cannot return home or have no home anymore. our joe johns is following us in washington on this story. but what he is following is that new jersey governor chris christy is now saying that people in the affected areas of new jersey, people affected by hurricane sandy can now vote electronically. they can vote by e-mail and they can vote by fax. it is an interesting turn. joe, what are you finding out about this? >> well, it's a very interesting turn, don. as you said, in respons
me @alivelshi. thank you for watching. cnn newsroom is up next. >>> hello, everyone. you're in the cnn newsroom. i'm fredricka whitfield. it's a sprint to the finish line for the presidential candidates with just three days left to go until election day. barack obama and mitt romney are making the most of every minute. both are crisscrossing the country and hitting the crucial battleground states one last time. the president's first stop today was a rally in ohio where he told a cheering crowd that his economic ideas are working. he's also stumping in wisconsin, iowa, and virginia. all today. and as we mentioned, wisconsin is one of those critical swing states the candidates are concentrating on. and campaign workers on both sides are out knocking on doors, trying to get people to the polls. white house correspondent brianna keilar joining us live from milwaukee, wisconsin. it will be a while before the president speaks there, but you got a crowd and lots of music, nonetheless. >> that's right. and this crowd is eagerly awaiting not only the president but katy perry who w
. have a great weekend. >>> it's the top of the hour. you're in the cnn newsroom. i'm susan hendricks in today for fredricka whitfield. we have new information on the david petraeus resignation. the highly dedicated army colonel quit after announcing he had an extramarital affair. it's an fbi affair that's sounding alarms. the fbi was investigating some suspicious e-mails and found some e-mails between paula broadwell and david petraeus. broadwell is the woman who wrote his biography. the fbi looks to see whether his communications had been compromised, and they said they had not been. now, petraeus was interviewed by the fbi, but it's not clear if broadwell has been questioned and if she will be. a u.s. official said petraeus was never a target of an investigation and that a tip about an affair led to that probe. now, general petraeus was scheduled to testify next week about the attack on the u.s. consulate in libya. now what happens now that he's gone? suzanne kelly is in washington with that part of this big story. >> susan, as washington reels from the announcement not only that d
in new york. and close to 5 million customers are still waiting for the power to come back on. >> cnn has the entire disaster zone covered this morning. our correspondents spanned out across lower manhattan and all up and down the jersey shore. >> first, the economic capital of our country is slowly getting back to normal this morning even while facing extreme damage. power outages and people having to walk for hours just to get to work. meantime, another hospital lost generator power in lower manhattan. right now hundreds of people are being pushed out of bellevue after hundreds of others were evacuated yesterday. our dr. sanjay gupta is live at bellevue but first to rob marciano. the governor says there will be no fares for subways, trains and buses but many of the bus and subway lines are still not up and running yet so how limited is transportation now? >> well, i can tell you from what we witnessed yesterday, it's very limited. for one thing the buses don't run at night, at least south of 23rd because it's too dark and dangerous. you come down here in the middle of the night and you
now for promised spending cuts that won't materialize later. >> cnn political director mark preston is live from washington this morning. very nice to see you, mark. so the house is back in session today, and so far there are no talks scheduled between top republicans and the president, we understand. >> no, that's true, zoraida. in fact we haven't seen the congressional leadership and president obama meet since november 16th. now there were staff discussions over the thanksgiving holiday. they don't seem to be as productive as some people had hoped, as you said, we are now 35 days until the fiscal cliff. what we do know, though, is that president obama did reach out to house speaker john boehner. he is the republican, the senate majority leader harry reid the democrat over the weekend, perhaps to try to jump-start the talks. as of now, as the house of representatives comes back today, as the senate came back yesterday, we're still very much in limbo on the fiscal cliff. >> here's something else we know. some major republicans have come out and they say that they don't feel bound by
the polls will shed some light on who will win? forget about it. cnn editor paul stein hauser is here to do the math for us. paul, what do the national polls look like? >> two days to go, and we have four polls that are nonpartisan and came out since midnight. let's start with the abc news/"washington post." 48% of likely voters supporting the president. 48% supporting mitt romney. how about nbc news/"wall street journal," pretty much the same story, a 1 percentage point ahead of mitt romney. and pugh research center, they came out with obama with a 3 point advantage. that's within the sampling error. this is just about dead even as we get into the election. >> act what battleground states? >> that's the key here because this is not a popular vote, this is a battle for the states and their electoral votes. we look at those eight battleground states, polls in two of them just came out last night and nee're interesting. this is in des moines, iowa. you have the president with a five-point advantage there and nbc news "wall street journal" maris poll had results that were similar. romney start
of the residents whose lives have been turned upside down. cnn's brian todd is on the scene for us. brian, what are you seeing on staten island right now? >> reporter: well, wolf, at just about every house you go to in the section of staten island you hear horrific and pretty detailed stories of just how bad the storm was. here's the story of one man who took a few hits. if you can't imagine what it's like to suffer through a massive storm, listen to nick. >> the water was so high. it was up to this part of the door. i couldn't get into the door. i went around the side of the house. and i stood on a box that was floating. and i went through the window to get back in the house with my family. >> reporter: taking us through his house on staten island, the retired ups truck driver says he and his family scrambledto n upper floor away from water he was sure was going to keep rising. his wife and four sons survived. just about all of their first floor didn't. then just as nick and his family were recovering from the shell shock and flooding and trying to assess all of this damage, he took another bo
a ground assault. israel's deputy foreign minister told cnn this morning that would trigger that move. >> if we will see in the next 24, 36 hours more rockets, launched at us, i think that would be the trigger. >> ben wedeman joins me now from the israel/gaza border. what are you seeing and hearing there now? >> reporter: it is a bit surreal here. we're in the city's marina right next to the yoko sushi restaurant. as you can see, there are people out, having dinner. seemingly to be living a normal life. but the owner of this restaurant did tell us just an hour ago they heard the air raid sirens and in fact just a moment ago we saw in this screen with israeli television that in bere sheva air raid sirens did go off. all signeds indicate israel is preparing for a ground incursion. some of the roads around gaza on the israeli side have been closed to civilian traffic. the israeli security cabinet apparently is authorized the government to call up as many as 75,000 reservists, possibly to participate in this potential, possible ground incursion into gaza. there have been a lot of armor --

some of that as well. "cnn newsroom" continues now with ted rowlands. >> thank you, suzanne. i'm ted rowlands in for brooke baldwin. the developments are pouring in regarding the investigations of a former spy chief and current general, happening very soon, some of the lawmakers furious over not being told about the investigation of david petraeus are getting ready to meet. that's this afternoon. a senior official is telling cnn details about general john allen's relationship with a socialite at the center of both investigations. this is a web of characters and connections that is impacting the team in charge of america's security. it is also delaying when the world will know who will be the next leader of nato. general john allen was to have a confirmation hearing this thursday on his way to becoming the supreme allied commander. that, of course, is now on hold while allen denied doing anything wrong, he is under investigation for potentially inappropriate e-mails he sent to this woman, jill kelley, the tampa socialite triggered the petraeus investigation. we'll get to exactly
